After some research I’ve decided on 17x7.5+30 wrapped in 225/65/17 geolanders. Just wanted to hear some input on the setup and if I will run into any problems on stock height or if anyone has a better option

That size is about 3% bigger diameter than stock. Shouldn't cause any real problems, your speedometer will read a little low.

Thanks for the feedback man, is the +30 offset alright as I see a lot of people running high 30s to low 40s.

I can’t decide with going the off-road look with the 17s or just doing a wider 18 wheel and some all season tires. It’s my daily and I don’t really want to get into changing the suspension.

I'm in the same boat. Just bought an XT touring at the end of November. Thinking about getting 18 X 8.5 +45 wheels and 245/50R18 grand touring tires for 8 month use and then getting snow tires for the stock rims for Dec - Mar.
